We are always happy to consider contributions from the industry relevant to our core market, i.e. deep-sea merchant ships, with particular emphasis on their machinery, equipment and building/repair.
Our typical reader is a person holding a senior technical position in a ship owning, operating or management company. The Motorship deals primarily with technical aspects of ocean-going merchant ships and their equipment (particularly their machinery). Items about other subjects – e.g. ship operational issues, naval vessels, ports, yachts etc may be considered but are less likely to be used. Articles such as case studies, or which demonstrate quantifiable benefits to our target readers from using a product or service, are likely to meet our requirements. See our features schedule for a list of topics planned for our printed publication.
If articles are not of interest to The Motorship, we may forward them to our sister publications, e.g. Maritime Journal (workboats, marine civils etc), Port Strategy (ports and terminals) or Boating Business (recreational marine).
